Hi everyone! How was your week? Is anyone else having really strange weather? It's been in the 60s here and yesterday it rained like crazy. It was like a semi-pleasant, soggy, spring day. It is still December, isn't it? Just making sure I didn't somehow skip a whole season while I was in the library.
So, this week I didn't have a lot of time to sew because I was grading exams and doing other end-of-semester work. But I did finally finish and then actually sewed up this lovely thing:
Isn't she a cutie? Because of yesterday's rain, and the aforementioned job duties, I had to wait until today to get some pictures. It was still super-wet out, though, so if you see dark spots, it's not dirty, it just got a little damp.
Amazingly, there are three shades of gray in this quilt. I would never have guessed I would ever make a quilt that was mostly gray. It was a challenge, but I think I conquered it. I was afraid it would be too dark and drab, so I included the lighter gray cornerstones. I tried multicolored ones, but they looked bad. You wouldn't think they would, but they did.I think altogether the grays make the blocks really stand out.
If you remember, these are the 12 inch blocks from the Classic Stitches tutorials and are all scraps. I didn't start out thinking that I'd make another quilt from those blocks, but it just kind of happened, so I'm calling this quilt Serendipity--a happy accident.
Serendipity is probably my last finish for 2015. I don't know about you, but this has been a tough few months for me, and right now I'm exhausted. Plus, we are travelling for Christmas! We are heading back to Wisconsin and I can't wait. We will be staying with our son and are hoping for snow. I don't think that will happen, but it's nice to think about!
Now that two of my RSC15 quilts are done, next week I will post my plan for a new quilt for RSC16. In case you don't get a chance to stop by, though, I hope you all have a wonderful holiday, some time with your families, and some rest. And if you want it, maybe some time to stitch a few seams, too.
I have to go pack! Merry Christmas, everyone!
